About Helen Siegl
Something about the designer of the block prints often used on this site.

The blockprints used to illustrate text studies on this site are from a book we purchased, published from Pueblo Publishing of images created by Helen K. Siegl. Based on web research we found this book is known as Clip Art; Block Prints for Sundays, by Helen Siegl. ISBN: 081466066. Liturgical Press, 1992. This book is not available at the Liturgical Press website, though another book of clipart on the Old Testament is available.

The images were scanned in 1992. Use of these images on this site does not imply any permission granted to others to download and use these images.
